Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the front and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2021 Harley-Davidson Custom Design has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
